The RNC on the other hand has $12.5 million in cash on hand.
There’s another budget crisis in Washington, and it’s unfolding inside the Democratic party. The Democratic National Committee remains so deeply in the hole from spending in the last election that it is struggling to pay its own vendors.
It is a highly unusual state of affairs for a national party — especially one that can deploy the President as its fundraiser-in-chief – and it speaks to the quiet but serious organizational problems the party has yet to address since the last election, obscured in part by the much messier spectacle of GOP infighting.
The Democrats’ numbers speak for themselves: Through August, 10 months after helping President Obama secure a second term, the DNC owed its various creditors a total of $18.1 million, compared to the $12.5 million cash cushion the Republican National Committee is holding.
Several executives at firms that contract to provide services to the party – speaking anonymously to avoid antagonizing what remains an important if troubled client — describe an organization playing for time as they raise alarms about past-due bills falling further behind. And senior strategists close to the DNC say they worry the organization appears to have no road map back to solvency. “They really thought they could get this money raised by the summer,” one said, “but the fact is, from talking to people over there, they have no real plan for how to solve this.”
A fair question to ask is, "Why is the black man so angry and why is his hostility specifically directed at White people?"
Where is this hostility coming from?
America has been, of late, bombarded by the liberal media's race-baiting, hate-festering, vindictive propaganda machine associated with the George Zimmerman/Trayvon Martin incident. The nation, without a doubt, has been divided because of this incident. And, while the incident itself - most would agree - was an unfortunate and, likely, preventable tragedy, what the liberal media has done, as well as liberal politicians such as Barack Hussein Obama, with the story, is staggeringly harmful and must be seriously taken into account as a likely cause of the kind of rage exhibited Lashawn Martin.
It is no secret that Barack Hussein Obama ( the Chicago, community organizer, formerly known as Barry Soetoro of Indonesia) has been a highly divisive leader; one whose rhetoric, apparently, is purposefully designed to spark division and resentment , rather than peace, unity, and brotherly trust. Regularly inserting himself into situations, such as the George Zimmerman case, that have lead to an increase in distrust between people of different races, primarily between Blacks and Whites, the time has now come for the American people to seriously ask whether or not the president's own words - aided by race hustlers like Al Sharpton - have directly lead to the violence seen on the streets, and exemplified by Lashawn Marten.
America's "race relations" are on a rapid decline because of this dishonest, divisive rhetoric. This latest incident (among many other recent incidents) reflects a growing sentiment of hatred and distrust in Black people directed at White people. Why? Who is to blame for this?
"A film that finally puts the pieces of the puzzle together. If you've wondered why America has been falling apart from within, you will love AGENDA. Please share with everyone you can and order a few copies to give to pastors, representatives, and conservative leaders. America needs to see this film"
The Ron Paul Institute is not the institution to which Ron Paul has been committed. It’s the Ron Paul outlet. And it reflects his Blame America for Muslim Terror philosophy.
What happened in Kenya is a terrorist act. But for Obama to tell the rest of the story would undermine his narrative and unravel Washington’s strange relationship with the al-Qaeda affilliated al-Shabaab organization that claimed responsibility for the attack. Al-Shabaab, or “Mujahideen Youth Movement,” in fact owes its birth to US interventionism in Africa, as it sprang up from the ashes of the Islamic Courts Movement that had ruled Somalia until a US-sponsored invasion by Ethiopia destroyed the Courts Movement in 2007 and divided supporters into factions. Some decided to work with the US-supported Transitional Federal Government (TFG); others, like the al-Shabaab, decided to resist US and other foreign occupation and intervention in Somali affairs.
As globetrotting analyst Pepe Escobar points out in a highly recommended recent article, the Islamic Courts had generally stabilized Somalia and disarmed many of the militias. They were proponents of Sharia law, which the US found intolerable and labeled “terrorist,” opening the door for the brand new US Africa Command, based in Germany, to begin working on regime change.
The Islamic Courts Union had stabilized Somalia the way that the Taliban had stabilized Afghanistan. That didn’t stop liberals from repeatedly defending the ICU, despite its nightmarish atrocities.
However the Ron Paul Institute claims that the Islamic Courts Union would have left the rest of Africa alone if we left them alone. This single idiotic idea underpins the Paul isolationism position. It’s also laughably untrue.
Even as President Obama and his administration are making a last minute push to encourage enrollment in Obamacare, a quiet change was made on the Healthcare.gov website regarding those who will still not be able to afford coverage after the program kicks in. From at least June 26, 2013 to as recently as September 15, under the topic, "Where can I get free or low-cost care in my community?" the following statement appeared: "If you can't afford any health plan, you can get free or low-cost health and dental care at a nearby community health center." Here is how the page in question appeared:
However, sometime between September 16 and September 23, the reference to "free" care was dropped. The title of the topic was changed as well, and now reads: "Where can I get low-cost care in my community?" Here is how the page currently appears:
Ah--the delicious irony of China, of all places, being the source of Americans' and others' means of throwing off the chains of forcible citizen disarmament tyranny. The "government monopoly on force," so beloved of the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence (and Democrat New York Congressman Jerrold Nadler) is dying, and "progressive" China is helping to pull the plug.
Barack Obama has 36.9 million Twitter followers, 19.5 million of whom, it turns out, are fake. This is a very disturbing sign for Obama's opponents, as it demonstrates just how much appeal the president still has with his key support base, namely those who identify most closely with him on a personal level -- fake people.
The Daily Mail Online has analyzed the numbers and discovered that among U.S. political figures, the four Twitter accounts with the most fake followers -- that is, followers who don't really exist -- are those of Barack Obama (by a landslide), Joe Biden, Michelle Obama, and the White House communications department. Those who would laugh this off as evidence of a pathetic progressive attempt to manipulate public perceptions are perhaps missing the point. Americans who care about the downfall of their country ought to be most concerned about the trend indicated here. A hitherto negligible segment of the population, nonexistent humans, has found in the present U.S. administration a powerful reason to emerge from the shadows at last and become fully engaged participants in the political process. There is no clearer indication of the dangers facing America than this surge in political activity among people who do not exist, especially when one considers that this group vastly outnumbers the existent.
But why all this political enthusiasm among the unreal, all of a sudden? The answer is all too clear. In 2008, America elected its historic first fake president, thus giving hope and a lifeline to fakers everywhere: "Maybe I can participate on equal terms with real people, too."
Consider the president -- or rather, don't. As a matter of fact, you can't. For all intents and purposes, he doesn't exist. The "first black president" was born of a white mother, and raised by white grandparents. Wonder what courses he took in college? Don't -- you're not allowed to know. How did this self-described drug-addled loafer get into so many top shelf universities, seemingly transferring from one to another in mid-program effortlessly? Don't ask -- his applications and letters of acceptance are apparently national security secrets.

WASHINGTON — Since 2010, the National Security Agency has been exploiting its huge collections of data to create sophisticated graphs of some Americans’ social connections that can identify their associates, their locations at certain times, their traveling companions and other personal information, according to newly disclosed documents and interviews with officials.
The spy agency began allowing the analysis of phone call and email logs in November 2010 to examine Americans’ networks of associations for foreign intelligence purposes after NSA officials lifted previous restrictions on the practice, according to documents provided by Edward J. Snowden, the former NSA contractor.
The policy shift was intended to help the agency “discover and track” connections between intelligence targets overseas and people in the United States, according to an NSA memorandum from January 2011. The agency was authorized to conduct “large-scale graph analysis on very large sets of communications metadata without having to check foreignness” of every email address, phone number or other identifier, the document said. Because of concerns about infringing on the privacy of U.S. citizens, the computer analysis of such data had previously been permitted only for foreigners.
The agency can augment the communications data with material from public, commercial and other sources, including bank codes, insurance information, Facebook profiles, passenger manifests, voter registration rolls and GPS location information, as well as property records and unspecified tax data, according to the documents. They do not indicate any restrictions on the use of such “enrichment” data, and several former senior Obama administration officials said the agency drew on it for both Americans and foreigners.
